#36alive 281: The Things You Can Only See When You Slow Down

Today’s post is another book recommendation. It is a book that I am only halfway through but have already gained a lot of food for thought from reading it and have actually found myself thinking of the book when in stressful situations over the last few days. Well, when I say stressful situations I mean situations that probably shouldn’t be stressful but I often make them so, such as the trains to Brighton being off today which meant we had to get on the replacement bus service, and roadworks slowing down all my journeys, and buying a new pair of trainers that are a bit too small, you know the sort of things that may get to us from day to day, First world problems I think people say these days, which is saying that did get on my nerves a bit but not so much anymore with my new outlook.

I’ll stop rambling on and just tell which book I’m on about, it is Haemin Sunim’s ‘The Things You Can See Only When You Slow Down’. The book is separated in to 8 chapters addressing various aspects of life such as ‘Relationships’ and ‘The Future’. Each chapter starts with a little story about the subject, followed by a series of short messages, with a shorter essay after that, ending with more short messages.

It is an easy read and I like how the author advises that readers take a break after a chapter to let the messages sink in.

If you’re looking for something to read then look no further, treat yourself to this little treasure and be calm with me.

Ps. I still got annoyed when I couldn’t find a parking space earlier but didn’t swear so making progress.
